You can't see it from the picture but the ruffles drape gracefully in your back. Very dramatic. I don't know whether to wear it today, it's my birthday (hehe) but it's a wee bit formalish for here where I live. Will post pics if ever.

I am so inspired! and a bit jealous too. Who knew lilac could be so nice and not cloying to look at? Will definitely buy new curtains and bedsheets. Jessica Stam, you have a good decorator
So i have an excuse for going to the sale season. Tomorrow is Sunday, the last day of the sale. Im going to a mountain city where they have a popular mall chain and hope i can find something there. My salvation now rests in the Red Tag boutique where they have a clearance sale on Ralph Lauren, Armani Exchange, Jessica and Nine West shoes. Red Tag, do you have something for me? :) If not, then will have to settle with this (also Prada) dress that is colorblock. The only thing I'm hesitating about is its fabric, rayon, which is not exactly cool on your skin. An uncomfortable dress ruins everything i think.
What do you think? Give this dress a go?

The Lobby of the hotel with its big dome like the ones found in Santorini
The Santorini Lounge Bar. It looks so much better in real life, promise
Since we went there after a huge dinner from midway grill, we had the house wine and the panna cotta. Nicely plated and delicious too. It was night so we didn't see the vista,but we were dining in this huge terrace overlooking the sea. Maybe I'll go back and see, it must be incredibly amazing to dine there in sunlight.

Clubhouse sandwiches with fries for a post surf snack. The fries are superb.

please ignore the face hehee :) too busy wondering of the dress look good. now what i like about this dress is the collar. One can wear it in three different ways to make it look different. Bang for your buck huh?

First dress, an 80's vintage dress. I love, love the color. Such a nice pink and sophisticated at the same time. The belt has a gold leaf design and the skirt electrically pleated.
This dress has a very thin skirt, almost like its an under wear. It's perfect for the hot weather here. I will just have to wear something underneath the skirt to prevent it from looking obscene.
Third dress is has a hood at the back but has crochet details on the front to soften the look. Very versatile. Now if i can only find something black to wear underneath it to keep the crochet details from peeking my front heehe.
I don't know which designer is this from but I found this from an online shop who could reproduce this exactly. I haven't tried their services yet but I would certainly like to order. The bright red skirt looks appealing and I like bows anyway.
Moschino dress with a floral embroidered neckline. Pretty and classy but the problem is that it looks similar to my other dresses. And the neckline makes it a memorable dress so I won't justify its price by wearing it often. But what the heck, it's pretty anyway. Still available in my size, 4.
This top is from a local designer with whom I had ordered a piece before. All of his pieces are very structured and feminine at the same time. What I like about this piece is the one shoulder cut and ruffled front. Nice color too. Reminds me of what Kristen Bell wore to a Monnique Lhuillier store opening.

Now, let's see what's nice shall we?
Erickson Beamon crystal drop earrings at $475. Beautiful eh? And crystals are apparently not cheap. Perfect for weddings and black tie affairs. Although if you're like me, I wear them sometimes in the mall :(

Emerald cut citrines by Bounkit for Vivre. Very classy don't you think? It would pair with almost anything and has understated elegance. At $225
